Message from Ms. Masone:

Dear Families:

Welcome to 2023! We are excited to work alongside you and your child this school year as we maintain our continued focus on Relationships, Deep Learning and Opportunity and the whole child!

We have opened our Choice Enrollment window for new out-of-district families on January 6, 2023. If you know an interested family, encourage them to apply.

Attendance matters! We are shooting for 95% attendance every day. If your child is ill, please keep your child home. Our goal beginning in January 2023, is to increase attendance along with our growth in mathematics.

Please note that Wednesday, January 11 is a regular school day, beginning at 8:00am.

We look forward to growing with you in 2023. Please let us know how we are doing and what we can do to make your school experience the best ever.

Thank you for your continued partnership!
